snarled and sandy turn[ minto ] you know, those ads saying mitt romney would ban all abortions and contraception seemed a bit extreme. so i looked into it. turns out, romney doesn't oppose contraception at all. in fact, he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother's life. this issue's important to me, but i'm more concerned about the debt our children will be left with. i voted for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years.

.m. tonight. there's also news this morning on the campaign front. mitt romney has won the endorsement of the "des moines register" in battleground state iowa. this has not gone to a republican presidential candidate since richard nixon. so to get some reaction to that, and other things, we go to our go-to guy in arizona for news, weather, and sports, john mccain. how's the weather out there, senator? and good morning to you. >> it's very nice and balmy. i think the storm may not reach arizona. but, obviously, the disruption of the airline-- the whole nation, obviously, and our prayers and thoughts are with those who line the path of the storm, and we'll keep praying. >> schieffer: all right. i want to ask you about that endorsement by the "des moines register." i mean, sometimes endorsements matter. sometimes they don't. it what about this one? >> i think in ray close race, the "register" is very well regarded, and of course it's almost a man bites doggistic because the "register" has not endorsed a republican since, i guess, calvin coolidge. i don't know. i think that aspect of it is
surprise. and mitt romney, who we just saw at some campaign event has chosen to continue with his traditional as if nothing else has happened, nothing has changed. i was slightly taken aback by that. i don't know, joy is indicate something agreement. >> it's funny. steve kornacki was saying he thought romney would keep campaigning and the conventional wisdom was that's never going to happen. but i agree with you, martin, hearing him say bring your donation to our victory center and before that still campaigning yesterday, saying people, hey, early vote is still happening. >> an hour ago they were campaigning. >> it was billed by the romney campaign as a storm relief event but happening in ohio, as we have just reported the bulk of the damage is not in ohio, although ohio may be touched by this. i thought, richard, you know, we talked about this being time for a national unity. chris christie yesterday, one of romney's chief surrogates, someone who has been vocal in his support for the former governor of massachusetts, had this to say about the president yesterday. >> yep. >> appre
the president will stop in wisconsin, iowa and ohio. governor romney was in virginia and then both campaigns are in ohio. both campaigns in iowa on saturday at the same time romney also going to colorado and new hampshire. that is how desperate both are for the undecided vote. just one and then on the sunday schedule for mitt romney. finishing where it began at. new hampshire. the daily tracking poll has governor romney maintaining the 2.lead within a margin of error. also the new abc poll with a one point* lead there in with -- within one-tenth of one percentage point*. at the same time obama was up five points and ultimately won by 6%. 2004 rasmussen project did a victory for president bush and one by the same margin. another poll shows them both died at 36% that same poll shows governor romney 14 pointed vantage on like we've voter turnout that could be the key putting the campaign over the top in the swing states. clear politics has wisconsin as a tossup the latest poll has a candidates' tied at 49%. the president by a margin of 56% is now tied. 16 electoral votes considered a tossup of
story this evening, four days before election day. and the race between president obama and mitt romney could not be any tighter. >> four more days! four more days! >> all right. the president today telling his liberal supporters that the mere mention of governor romney to exact revenge. >> no, no, no. don't boo. vote. vote. voting's the best revenge. >>> and thank you, again, vice president joe biden, for yet another gift. >> there's never been a day in the last four years i've been proud to be his vice president. not one single day. not one single day. >>> and we ask a key question tonight. is hurricane sandy so much worse with the loss of life and incredible suffering covering a third of the country? is that going to put voters in an angry, frustrated and ugly place? so much so that it damages president obama's re-electionesre-electio re-electionest. >>> we begin tonight with breaking news. after a friday filled with fury, michael bloomberg gave into the criticism and canceled the ing new york city marathon scheduled for this sunday. let's go live to cnbc's brian shactman with the la
candidates with just three days left to go until election day. barack obama and mitt romney are making the most of every minute. both are crisscrossing the country and hitting the crucial battleground states one last time. the president's first stop today was a rally in ohio where he told a cheering crowd that his economic ideas are working. he's also stumping in wisconsin, iowa, and virginia. all today. and as we mentioned, wisconsin is one of those critical swing states the candidates are concentrating on. and campaign workers on both sides are out knocking on doors, trying to get people to the polls. white house correspondent brianna keilar joining us live from milwaukee, wisconsin. it will be a while before the president speaks there, but you got a crowd and lots of music, nonetheless. >> that's right. and this crowd is eagerly awaiting not only the president but katy perry who will be performing a small concert before president obama. here in wisconsin it's all about for the obama campaign getting people out to vote now on election day. early voting wrapped up in this state yester
if your voter suppression through the this beautiful country enables romney to oust barack obama, we will burn this mother [bleep] down. if the republics steal this election, i'm going to track down mitt romney and give him the world's biggest [bleep] punch. >> bill: that first woman who is swearing 97 years old. and that spot was helped out by our pal michael moore. so now, the far left is threatening violence if president obama loses the election. that's what they are doing with old ladies. now, to be fair, the obama campaign most likely has nothing to do with that they would be crazy to associate with those loons. however, you judge people by their associations. and that's what's very troubling about the democratic party in general. most democrats are honorable people, civil patriotic, well-intentioned. but there is a lunatic fringe that has a lot of party. we saw that they democratic connection in charlotte where a number of far left individuals were given high profile speaking platforms. talking points is not an idealogue. i vote for the candidate i think will solve the most pro

economic numbers. norah? >>> in a statement governor mitt romney calls the job numbers a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual standstill. they both went on the attack for the first time since hurricane sandy. >> this is no time for small measures. this is time for real change. when i'm elected president on day one, we'll bring real change to america. >> he's saying he's the candidate of change. well, let me tell you, wisconsin, we know what change looks like. and what the governor is offering sure ain't change. >> reporter: before the numbers came out, i asked robert gibbs if the higher jobless rate supports romney's criticism of the president's record. >> look, i think what we expect to see is continued movement forward, 32nd month of positive, private sector job growth adding to the 5 million jobs that have been created as a result of those positive months. look, we're not where we all we want to end up, but we are making serious, important progress moving forward. mitt romney isn't a change agent. he wants to getg back to the economic theory that got us into this mess. >>
. >> thank you. norah? >>> for four days during superstorm sandy, president obama and mitt romney took it easy on each other, but on thursday they were back on the attack. >> this is no time for small measures. this is time for real change. when i'm elected president on day one we'll bring real change to america. >> he's saying he's the candidate of change. well, let me tell you, wisconsin, we know what change looks like. and what the governor's offering sure ain't change. >> former white house press secretary robert gibbs is a senior adviser to the obama campaign and join us this morning. good morning, robert. >> good morning, norah, how are you? >> good, good. we have a jobs report coming up today. the unemployment number could tick up. doesn't that reinforce mitt romney's position that obama's record on the economy has been a failure? >> no, look, i think what we expect to see is continued movement forward. 32nd month of positive, private sector job growth adding to the 5 million jobs that's been created as a result of those positive months. look, we're not where we all want to end
comment, which is really just a play off a comment that mitt romney made during the presidential debate where he talked about his destroyer to hire a lot of women, that's kind -- it's not helping him, and i think that's reflected in the poll numbers, because you're seeing right now, romney is it tied or seems to have kind of a momentum, i guess, moving into the final week and that's what pollsters are saying. i think that democrats feel that this will help, particularly with women voters, because they make up the majority of the electorate, and if they can kind of put forward this argument that mitt romney wants to take away some things that are very important to them, then they can get the edge amongst that party electorate, which in a very close election, can be really critical. >> susan of the washington examiner, neil of roll call, thank you both for being with us on news makers for this sunday. it's interesting that we as a society have given our information out. >> we were looking in to cyber and cyber security and cyber war. the pentagon had declared cyberspace the environment of
at the two candidate, what they're doing today. governor romney has been delivering a major economic address to voters in iowa. >> this is not the time to double down on trickle-down government policies that have failed us. it's time for new bold changes that measure up to the moment. that can bring america's family to certainty, that the future will be better than the past. >> eric: president obama on the other hand, has a different agenda. today he is hanging out with mtv. look, it doesn't matter what you think of romney. what matters is this. do you really want four more years of obamanomics? check out the latest poll from abc/"washington post." when asked who do you trust more to hand the economy? romney 45 #%. president obama 43%. nine-point difference is huge. we have 11 days to decide who will lead the great republic out of the economic slump or in. ask yourself do i want to guy with job creation all over his resume, or the guy who spends his time with leno, letterman, jon stewart, pimp with the limp and mtv? i don't think, today was an unbelievable look in two candidates. >> dana: tr
. the tracking poll is likely voters has romney up by 5 percentage points. a new washington post abc tracking poll of likely voters has the race even at 49% apiece, a pew research center survey has the candidates not among likely voters, 47% each, can you believe this? and it's still hard to get a sense as to who has the upper hand in key swing states. in florida, a cnn/orc poll has romney up by just one point well within the margin of error. and in north carolina, where democrats held their convention last month, a university poll has it even 45% to 45%. >> mark haleprin, can't get much closer everywhere. >> i mean -- >> and minnesota, minnesota is not even a key swing state. you've got bill clinton going in because a new poll shows mitt romney within the margin of error in minnesota. plus, you have some information about some space where the republicans are about to start rushing in and putting up campaign ads that are not states that the obama team thought they would have to worry about one week out. >> we're going to go into election day not knowing. i don't care how rabid a partisan you
: the headline from the "philadelphia inquirer," obama still ahead, but romney up. joining us is the politics writer for the "philadelphia inquirer." how many do survey, what were the results? caller: this is a survey of 600 likely voters, all last week, tuesday through thursday. the margin of error is four percentage points. pennsylvania -- it has narrowed a little bit. it has swings towards romney a net two%. our last poll, just after the first debate -- is edging up, but obama has a steady lead. it is a democratic-leaning state these days. there has not been an awful lot of campaign activity in terms of action by the candidates. more important advertising -- they have not really targeted the state this year, unlike 2008 and the previous four cycles. host: there is an awful lot of advertising in the separate -- senate race, particularly by tom smith, the republican nominee. your polling shows that race is closer -- senator casey is still holding a lead of seven points over tom smith. what is happening in that race? caller: it is a simple matter of if you spend $17 million of your own money
. what do you think? because he clearly thinks it might be. >> not only that, the romney campaign believes that it might be. they wouldn't have canceled their events and said, we're going to see this turf. we're not going to try to compete on this front. we're not going to try to have competing events or look tone deaf, try to isolate a couple of days and hope that you can get back on the campaign trail. the fact of the matter is, there's no party of this -- this race is frozen in place like this. >> yes. >> any professional that looks at this realizes that's a great way of doing it. the caution flag is out and everybody is sort of doing their laps in place and when the green flag comes down, there will be a quick sprint but i think the tone will change and i don't think this helps -- it certainly -- it hurts romney in two ways. one, the romney has got a job to do. mitt romney has nothing to do during this crisis. the president has stuff he can do. that's number one. and, second, if romney felt as if momentum was starting to take hold here and he had this opportunity to start talk
